Quote of the Week

I was looking through my blog and realized that the last time I shared a quote, was over two months ago! That’s a long time to go without a quote and quite ironic considering that one of my apprehensions over having a “Quote of the Week” was that my blog would eventually just consist of various quotes rather than reviews (LOL). In order to remedy this shortfall, I figured that I’d share a quote that relates quite deeply to my own experience. I’ve always been a night owl and one of my favourite things to do at night, was to read. I cannot count the number of nights I spent just staying up late (on school nights no less!) just reading books! For some reason, I always found it difficult to put them down and get some sleep. This quote speaks to that experience.

To read for an hour or so at night is to enter a magic realm in which people are more interesting, informed, amusing and intelligent than anyone you encounter in everyday life.”   —- The Torchlight List, Jim Flynn

Quote of the Week

“Have you ever had your computer stop working? It’s agony. It feels like you’re actually withdrawing from drugs. You wander aimlessly around your apartment asking yourself, “Well, what do I do without my computer? Seriously. WHAT DO I DO?” Then things turn #dark and you become a person needing a hit. You’ll text everyone in your phone “Um, can I come over and use your internet?” and some will respond, “Um, sure.” You’ll come over immediately and check your email, Facebook and Twitter and think “Um, is that it? That’s what I’ve been needing a hit of?” Yes. Yes it is.”       —Ryan O’Connell

Quote of the Week

Loneliness is the human condition. Cultivate it. The way it tunnels into you allows your soul room to grow. Never expect to outgrow loneliness. Never hope to find people who will understand you, someone to fill that space. An intelligent, sensitive person is the exception, the very great exception. If you expect to find people who will understand you, you will grow murderous with disappointment. The best you’ll ever do is to understand yourself, know what it is that you want, and not let the cattle stand in the way.”     — Janet Fitch, White Oleander 

Quote of the Week

We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and – in spite of True Romance magazines – we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely – at least, not all the time – but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don’t see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.”     — Hunter S. Thompson

Quote of the Week

I choose to write because it’s perfect for me. It’s an escape, a place I can go to hide. It’s a friend, when I feel out casted from everyone else. It’s a journal, when the only story I can tell is my own. It’s a book, when I need to be somewhere else. It’s control, when I feel so out of control. It’s healing, when everything seems pretty messed up. And it’s fun, when life is just flat-out boring.”     —Alysha Speer
